l’Octavin Vin de France Dorabella 2018 Magnum
This wine is made from Poulsard grapes from fifty year old vines sourced from Alice’s vines in the «En Curon» vineyard, on the outskirts of Arbois.
The wine is named after one of the sisters from the opera Cosi Fan Tutte. We particularly like the mouth-feel of this wine with its generous texture and lovely acidity backed by very subtle tannins.
The grapes were destemmed and then macerated for two months.
As you would expect from a wine made from the Poulsard grape there are lovely notes of strawberries and cherries, but there is also a lingering herbal note that reminds us of marjoram or oregano. There are also some beautiful spices and pronounced minerality shining through. It is fresh, juicy and light – just what you expect a good Jura red wine to be.
This wine is certified organic with Ecocert France and biodynamic with Demeter.
